I thought we were talking about Py3K, where syntax changes are somewhat more
expected.  Just to make things clear, the syntax change I was referring to
was the value-less dict syntax that someone proposed a few days ago:

    myset = {"a", "b", "c"}

Note that I wasn't necessarily supporting the proposal, only acknowledging
that it had been made.

In general, I think we need to keep straight where people feel various
proposals are going to fit.  When a thread goes for more than a few messages 
it's easy to forget.
